My daughter & myself attended the Island Breeze Luau during our stay on the Big Island. I think it was the very best Luau I have ever been to. I have probably enjoyed 5 or 6 different Luau's in my previous visits to the Hawaiian Islands, but this was the best. The show was fabulous. There was such a wide... More

The setting was beautiful. The dancing magnificent, the live music right on. The food choices delightful. Watching them taking the pig out ,fun. Open bar refreshing. The only downside,not a lot of history about food and customs was shared

Basically, I like luaus of the exciting dancers and the great food. At this luau, the food was OK, and the women were, literally, covered head-to-toe. If you're Amish, you'll love it. If you're LDS, you'll think it's too conservative. If you're Atkins (or even moderately trying to eat balanced), you won't be able to. There are no veggies -... More

The whole family had a good time. Food and entertainment was very good. We have family here and they have been to four different luau's on the island, and they said this one was the best and we had no complaints.

The Island Breeze luau was good, but not as special as I had hoped for. The food was decent, but not great. The size of the group was reasonable, so although we paid for preferred seating I don't think it was necessary. No one was that far from the stage, and there was plenty of food so getting to the...

My friends and I had a WONDERFUL time at this luau! The food was delicious and the entertainment was spot-on. Huge shout out to the dancer who opened the coconuts on stage. He was funny and engaging and really talented at opening those coconuts. That was the first time I've eaten coconut that was so fresh, and it was delicious.... More

We were on our honeymoon and since it was our first ever trip to Hawaii we thought we should see a Luau! We chose this one due to the good reviews and the convenience since we were already staying at the hotel. I'm so glad we saw this show! It was wonderful! We opted for the preferred seating which gave... More

I've been to see this show three times now, and they have been wonderful. (When outdoors, anyway. The one that got rained out and was inside was worth rescheduling.) Twice my husband and I brought our parents (first mine, then his) and once we went by ourselves. Before the lu'au you get to engage in a bunch of activities like... More

What a great way to learn about the history, culture and food of the Big Island and become "ohana" (family) with Hawaii. We paid the extra $$ to sit close and get to the buffet first, and it was worth it. From the crafts, music and host commentary, it was a great evening for our family of 7. Located on... More

This was one of the highlights of our time in Hawaii. I cannot say enough good things about Island Breeze. From the breakout hula lessons, to the taking out of the pig, to the incredible food, to the entertainment which highlighted the cultures of several of the Polynesian islands, this luau exemplified the spirit of aloha, and the love of...
